MST brings a new team of responders to the scene where they can benefit both the subject and the first responders on scene. MST is made of an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in a support vehicle that runs to any calls where mental health of a patient is in question. The units are supported by one PHC case facilitator who will support each unit, following up with individuals to connect them with services in our community. MST provides local consultation, screening and intervention to people in crisis, mainly those with behavioral health and substance abuse issues.
